Fall becomes the “season of change.” New opportunities mean change is in the air. Some changes may affect us negatively, while other changes potentially offer us “once in a lifetime” moments. When “once in a lifetime” moments arrive, we tend to foster plans in our minds on how we see ourselves exceeding in life. We start postulating new visions, fresh perspectives, and, most of all, new directions, which is essentially our “season of change.”
Yet, in reality, we have this wrong. How can we appreciate change without considering our path? Understanding whom we have become. Time and again, we allow our ego to believe we are significantly better than the person we once were. This is our truth.
We start focusing on our “season of change,” neglecting to check our ego, to concentrate on the “once in a lifetime” moment, which will, in turn, become a dream come true. Wrong! How do we know what change means if we don’t look back? Yes, luck and talent allow us to move forward, but without a complete understanding of who we are, we will fall short and squander our opportunity for change and to grasp our “once in a lifetime” moment.
Remember the notable quote, “I could not have known then that everybody, every person, has to leave, has to change like seasons; they have to, or they die. The seasons remind me that I must keep changing.” Instead of relying on a “once in a lifetime” moment, cultivate a plan, nurture change, and look back.
Once you are focused, then spring into action. Your previous direction may perhaps, been correct, but now supported with a 360-degree view, you can proceed with a more transparent and concise plan. When in doubt, humble yourself, check your ego, and look back. Only then will a “season of change” offer you a “once in a lifetime” moment.
Never stop believing, asking the question ‘Why?’ and living free.
